Miami boy, 17, is arrested for 'using social media to pimp out 14-year-old girl for sex and arranging up to five "dates" a day at $250 an hour'

A 17-year-old has been arrested on charges related to sex trafficking a 14-year-old runaway girl in Florida. 
Javier Quintero, 17, of Miami, was arrested Wednesday - the day after the girl's relatives told police that they had seen pictures of her, allegedly being advertised for prostitution, on social media.  
Although Quintero is being held at a juvenile detention center, he now faces adult charges of human trafficking of a person under 18, deriving support from proceeds of prostitution, possession of child pornography and renting space to be used for prostitution.

Additional charges against him include custodial interference, unlawful use of a communications device and contributing to the delinquency of a child, according to his arrest report, which was obtained by the Miami Herald
'This situation is every parent’s worst nightmare,' Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle told CBS Miami. 'Children like this, our children, can be lost so easily. But I and our law enforcement partners are determined to keep that from happening.'  
Police said relatives of the girl - who is not being named - told them late Tuesday about the social media pictures of her they saw. The cops were able to trace the images of the girl back to Miami's Runway Inn, where they found the girl that night. 
Rundle said that the girl told police that she had run away from home several weeks prior due to a 'conflict in her household.'

Investigators said that the girl was introduced to Quintero by a friend and that one week after meeting him, he took her to motels where they would have sex. 
Quintero later allegedly told the girl that she could make $250 an hour if she performed sexual acts with other men.   
According to Quintero's arrest report, the girl told police that he sold her for sex up to five times a day at hotels - including the Runway Inn and a Days Inn - across the street from Miami International Airport for about three weeks. 
She said Quintero told her to get her payment up front, to give it to him immediately so that she wouldn't get robbed and to ensure that the men wore condoms. 
She also said that Quintero handled all the arrangements for prostituting her, including providing the hotel room and transportation, while also taking all the money and controlling her living situation.   
She told police that the first person who she was sold to was called 'Slime' and that he had paid for sex with Percocet pills.  
Police said that they saw a screenshot of a July 19 text that Quintero had kept, in which a 'Slime' offered five Percocet pills and $100 to have sex with the 14-year-old runaway. 
While she was being prostituted, the girl said that Quintero gave her marijuana, cocaine, MDMA, Percocet and Dextromethorphan. 
Police said that Quintero's Instagram account showed sexual pictures and videos of the girl, including a clip of him touching her breasts. 
The videos and pictures appear to have been deleted - only two pictures of Quintero remain on the Instagram page. 
After being taken into custody Wednesday, Quintero allegedly told police that he thought the girl was 17. 
In Florida, minors ages 16 or 17 can have consensual sex with a partner who is up to 23 years old without it being considered statutory rape. 
The girl, however, told police that he knew she was a minor, WSVN reported.  
Quintero faces at least a life sentence if convicted on the sex trafficking of a minor charge.
